Vijay Sethupathi Talks About How Difficult It Is To Make Sequel To Films

After the hilarious answer, Vijay Sethupathi talked in length about how difficult it is to conceptualise sequels to successful films. Talking about it, he said, "Making a sequel to a film is too much pressure. When somebody asked for an Andhadhun sequel, before Andhadhun, you don't have an opinion on Andhadhun. Once the film releases, you have an opinion and the standard becomes very high. Then we have to make above that because this time, you come in with so much expectations. We have to satisfy the expectations and it is very difficult. But if director gets that idea, he will come and approach."

Merry Christmas Releases In Theatres On 12th January, 2024

When Sriram Raghavan was recently asked if he would like to make a sequel to Merry Christmas, he promptly answered that there would be no sequel to the film. As about a sequel to Andhadhan, the master director jokingly said that he would make Andhadhun's sequel only if he was 'broke'. Merry Christmas releases in theatres, in Hindi and Tamil, on the 12th of January, 2024.
